he says"""""""The Arabic word al-ruum means the Greeks also the Byzantines. The Arabic words al- yunaniyuun or al-ighreeq means the Greeks and the term al-ambaratoriyya al-romaniya al-sharqiyya means the Eastern Roman Empire"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

I say""""""""""""""No,

al-Ruum is Roma citizen or or citizensArabs started to know the TheEast Roman empire just after the Latin crusade in 1202 to Istanbul(Former Konstaninopolis).The east roman emperor escaped to Tranzon for 60years .In this period latins founded a new state in Istanbul named""ROMANIA""."""""There is/was no wording in arabic for Bzantion in any date.

Greeks were """yunani""" because of the Ionian lands who speaks Greek ""igreek means"" Y """in arabic.

There were greek speaking tribes and cities but they were members of the east roman empire like some Turks in eastern Anatolia in the same time and some Turks in western therace in 1300s.

German Historian Hieronymus Wolf wrote a book about the fall of Istanbul in 1557 """"" Corpus Historiae Byzantinæ """"" ".

brits and Frenchs created a Byzantion Empire in 1821 with this book.

Some people says ""he was bir,bed to write this book""""by the church.

The founder of istanbul Emperor Konstantin ""the Greek ""was not Greek.

He was East Roman his real name was ""Gaius Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus"""

and he was Albanian Roman like your savior(!)in 1821 Kolokktronis.

Konstantinopolis was not Konstantinopolis and it was Nea Roma.

Konstantin was not even Greek .

He was not even Orthodox.

He was not even Christian.

He was a pagan albanian roman.

He used Apollon the Roman god in the moneys and he used his portrait as ""Sol Victius"""Sun God.

He was baphtished by the thief prists after his death.

as a normal Klephtocratic Greek habit.

Sorry I know facts hurt
